IFF file extension - Electronic Art Interchange file

What is iff file? How to open iff files?

File type specification:

Graphics file type icon Graphics file type

The IFF format was defined by Electronic Arts back in 1985. The IFF format is quick and easy to read and uncompress. However, it lacks a good compression scheme, making it unsuitable for storage of deep color images. Note that the IFF format can be used to hold a wide variety of information. An IFF file does not necessarily contain an image; it can contain sound clips, animations, text or whatever else. The default extension is IFF, though you are likely to encounter a lot of other extensions like MP, HAM, ILBM, LBM, etc.
